PFLAG co-founder and Seattle Counseling Service counselor Arleen Nelson dies at 92

IN MEMORIAM -
Arleen Francis Bruce Nelson
October 1926 - April 23, 2019


Arleen Nelson was born in Loma Linda in October 1926. She died at Swedish Hospital April 23, 2019 at age 92. Her parents were Delbert and Sarah Bruce. She is survived by daughter Dr. Heidi Nelson, son Gregory Nelson, grandchildren Andrew Nelson and Sarah Nelson, and daughter-in-law Heidi Lynn Nelson, and many nephews and nieces. Her beloved sister Thelma Jo Landon preceded her in death. Her body will be laid to rest in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery next to those of her sons, Mark Nelson and Scott Nelson.

Arleen grew up in San Bernardino, CA and later graduated from UCLA. She married A. Gordon Nelson with whom she raised their four children in Malibu, Northridge, CA, and later in Chelan, WA. Mid-life, she divorced Gordon, and went back to school, obtaining her MSW from the University of Washington. Residing on Mercer Island, she went into private practice as a therapist, and later joined Seattle Counseling Service. She was involved locally and nationally in the founding of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays.

After she retired from SCS, she continued to work for them on a contract part-time basis until two years ago. She served on the Board of Directors for SCS. At Bayview Retirement Community, where she lived the past six years with a beloved view, she served on the Ethics Committee, and as a Resident Council President and Trustee.

A memorial service will be held at Prospect Congregational UCC Church, 1919 E Prospect St, Seattle, WA 98122 at 10am on Saturday, June 29, 2019. All are welcome. Street parking only. Arrive early.
